Faking The Game (Paradise Bay Billionaire Brothers #1) by Claudia Y. Burgoa ~ Book Review


Release Date: March 22

From USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Claudia Burgoa comes this page-turner fake-relationship-office romance.

What happens when the guy who’s afraid of love finds himself in it?

Know what they say about never mixing business with pleasure? Yeah, no.
The one about never sleeping with your boss?
I ignored it too.
I blame Aslan Spearman, the boss.
He’s a wealthy playboy who doesn’t believe in happily ever after.
He’s demanding, a workaholic, and cynical.
He’d rather have a root canal than be in a romantic relationship.
Do you want to know a secret? I think he’s afraid of love.
So when he has to go to the Spearman family reunion in Hawaii with his girlfriend, he’s in big trouble.
That’s what happens when you lie to your family about your relationship status.
It wasn’t important—until now.
What does he do?
He comes to me, his VP of Operations and right hand for assistance.
After all, I’m a problem solver.
Except my personal life is complete chaos.
So we make a deal. I’ll be his girlfriend if he helps me solve my problems.
It’s a win-win situation, right?
I mean, how hard can it be?
It’s not like I plan to fall in love.

We are heading back to the Spearman Family, just a different branch of it, and I absolutely love it! This can be read seprately if you haven't read that series before but if you have you'll love seeing some familiar faces and how their lives have progressed since we've seen them last.

Aslan Spearman is lying to his mother and has been for the last year, only now it's catching up to him since the family reunion is coming up in a few weeks and there's no reason he shouldn't bring his girlfriend that he's been dating for a year to it...only he really hasn't been dating anyone he just told his mom that so she would stop bothering him about his personal life and the fact that he works to much. 

Keaton works for Aslan and is his VP of Operations, his right hand, his problem solver. So who better than her to help him out of this situation, and the fact that he's attracted to her can only help sell the fake relationship, right? I loved Keaton, she is a strong woman that had to deal with a lot, and now she finds herself behind the eight ball and that's not a good place to be. So even though she's very hesitant about this crazy proposal Aslan is offering...maybe just maybe it can help her out of the spot she has currently found herself in.

I love the chemistry between Keaton and Aslan. They have a solid working relationship but they also have a friendship of sorts as well, how many people can say that they are friends with their boss and don't mind working 10+ hours a day with them...not many so that should tell you something shouldn't it.

I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys Steamy Contemporary Romances, Large Family Romances, Office Romances, or the Fake Relationship Trope.

Happy Reading!!!
